The Senate passed a bill repealing significant portions of ObamaCare — the first time it has ever done so — and defunding Planned Parenthood.

UnitedHealth Group, the nation's largest health insurer, announced recently that it is considering withdrawing from the ObamaCare exchanges because of heavy losses.

Health coverage doesn't guarantee access to care, so single-payer won't solve anything, said Dr. Keith Smith of the Surgery Center of Oklahoma, one of the free-market alternatives to the government-insurance-medical complex.

A research report published November 3 in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) revealed that over a 13-year period, there was a significant increase in overall use of prescription drugs among U.S. adults, as well as a parallel increase in “polypharmacy” — defined as the use of five or more prescription drugs.

Just when ObamaCare defenders thought Healthcare.gov’s recovery was a sign of blue skies ahead for the president’s signature “achievement,” reality continues to rear its ugly head.
